Mexican man dies after clash with Border Patrol

SAN DIEGO — The Mexican government says a man from Mexico died after being shocked by a stun gun during a confrontation with U.S. Border Patrol agents at a California border crossing.

Mexico's Foreign Relations Department says Anastasio Hernandez died Monday at a hospital, days after he was shocked at San Isidro.

A U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokeswoman says Hernandez became combative Friday with agents who were preparing to hand him over to Mexican officials in Tijuana after he entered the United States illegally.

She says he ignored repeated orders to stop fighting but the incident is under investigation.

Mexico condemned the use of force.
